Okay. The Republican plan is "as the Iraqis stand up, we'll stand down." Ignore the fact that that is a slogan and not a plan and now try to make sense of what Dick Cheney said yesterday: "If we pull out, [the terrorists in Iraq] will follow us. It doesn't matter where we go. ... And it will continue---whether we complete the job or not in Iraq---only it'll get worse. Iraq will become a safe haven for terrorists."
Whether we complete the job or not - we will be leaving Iraq to terrorists. So we must staty in Iraq forever.
Please note that Michael Castle thinks that George Bush and Dick Cheney are doing a great job.UPDATE:"To all the Republicans who sit in their air-conditioned offices and talk of the courage it takes for them to keep young kids in harm's way - I say enough. Karl Rove talking about "cutting and running" while he sits on his big, fat backside-saying "stay the course." I say enough! That's not a plan! We've got to have a new direction, and it's clear we need more Democrats in Congress to get that done. "
